    A short lesson on the importance of a Christian woman to have the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.

    Today, I want us to consider something “precious in the sight of God.” God created the Universe. All things belong to Him. He sees all things before Him.

    based on 6 ratings
     | 1,364 views

    Why is the term ‘Christ’ associated with Jesus’ name? What does ‘Christ’ mean? That is the topic that we will be considering today.

    We find that in the New Testament, Jesus is referred to as “Jesus Christ” one hundred and thirty-four times. For someone new to the Scriptures, since ‘Christ’ follows ‘Jesus’ so frequently, one might get the idea that ‘Christ‘ is Jesus’ surname or last name. However, there are eighty-six times in ...read more

    True Confessions Proverbs 28:13 The Apostle John proclaims an unfortunate truth, in 1 John 1:8, 10, when he says, “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us…If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.” One of ...read more

    based on 35 ratings
     | 4,802 views

    Jesus taught more about Hell than He did about Heaven. In fact, for every mention of Heaven, He mentions Hell twice as often. I want to look at four things that Jesus reveals about the horrors of Hell.

    One of the tragic facts revealed by Jesus is that the majority of the human race will spend eternity in Hell. Jesus pleads, in Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is ...read more
